    For allowing all users to mount everything can be done my editing /etc/sysctl.conf and adding a line vfs.usermount=1
    What does this actually do? Is it safe? I dont want to allow mount everything. Its enough if users can mount the part of filesystem (--bind) to another provided they have permissions for both mount point and the rootdir.
